Following the successful launch of its B&O Music Lates sessions, Bang & Olufsen has announced a new series of cultural events that will see the brand’s flagship Mayfair store become a hub for artistic discovery. EI was in attendance and the collection is absolutely fantastic, something for any music fan, some shots you will recognise, other less well know gems are a particular delight.

B&O Art Lates will transform the New Bond Street venue into a canvas for the capital’s most exciting visual artists, immersing store-goers in the creative world of London’s innovators, says the company.

Starting with acclaimed London-born photographer Denis O’Regan from March 27, 2024, the store will host a collection of limited edition artworks for four weeks. Famed for his uniquely intimate portraits of David Bowie, Queen, The Rolling Stones, and more, visitors to B&O Art Lates will provide a front seat in the tour bus of musical history.

Transcending the line between outsider and insider, Denis’s work within the punk, new romanticism, grunge and heavy metal movements have graced album covers and front pages across the globe. The official photographer for Duran Duran, The Who, Kiss, Neil Diamond, Pink Floyd, The Bee Gees and Thin Lizzy, Denis’s prolific portfolio is testament to his respectful approach to his subjects.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to view Denis’s distinctive perspective on some of the biggest moments of the 20th century, from Live Aid to the Concert For Diana.

“As well as immersing visitors in Bang & Olufsen’s beautiful sound, timeless design, and unrivalled craftmanship, our New Bond Street store is a place for creative collaboration. Starting with some fantastic music performances and now moving onto the visual arts, we’re excited to support emerging and established names from a range of disciplines,” says Zoe Baddeley, Head of Marketing & PR, UK & IE at Bang & Olufsen.

“For nearly a century, Bang & Olufsen has pushed the boundaries of audio technology and acoustic innovation. O’Regan has earned his own reputation as a digital innovator through the early adoption of new photographic technologies, and we can’t wait to show both bodies of work co-existing in perfect harmony,” Zoe continues.

The expansion of B&O Lates signals Bang & Olufsen’s enduring commitment to reflect Mayfair’s renowned creative community in-store.

With two more artist residencies yet to be announced, Bang & Olufsen of Mayfair has already proven a strong setting to champion London’s brightest. In February, B&O Music Lates enchanted visitors with the likes of Ace Clvrk, Ayda Rose and Grace Gachot.

The retail destination opened its doors in late 2023, bringing fans of the brand’s sound and beautiful design closer than ever to Bang & Olufsen’s full range of speakers, televisions, and headphones with sensory, customised retail experiences.

Designed to guide visitors on a journey through sound and art from the moment they enter, Bang & Olufsen of Mayfair is already home to a specially commissioned piece of furniture by celebrated London artist James Shaw, which invites the store’s visitors to slow down and lose themselves in their surroundings. Challenging the notion of waste, Shaw’s impactful work inspires dialogue and echoes Bang & Olufsen’s own approach to longevity and circular design.

Bringing the creative experience full circle, Bang & Olufsen’s New Bond Street store also allows customers to emerge as the creators of their own personalised designs via the first floor’s apartment-style Bespoke zone. The Denis O’Regan exhibition runs until Friday April 26.
